Before Deciding

When our representatives are making important decisions that impact all of our lives I believe it is important to ask one basic question before making
those decisions,
Is this good for
the children?

Just imagine what our world would be like if that question was asked prior to making decisions about going to war, the environment, education or healthcare.

On Monday's show of 4/24/17 Host Elaine B. Holtz interviews two guests.    Our first guest is Joy Regan who started her company, WomenWalking: Walking Partners for Women, because of her life and work experiences: as a mediator, a single parent and the desire for community connection. As a single mom, Joy and her kids moved to a town where they didn’t know anyone. Working, getting home tired, parenting her kids, Joy wanted friends which motivated her to begin Women Walking. Joy loves to share what she’s learned about walking, listening, connection and the joy of being in community with women. WomenWalking is the “get outside to walk” movement of and for women who want to walk with one walking partner.

Guest 2.  Barbara Moulton is a volunteer with and Co-leader of Citizens' Climate Lobby--Santa Rosa chapter. In the early 2000's, she started biking for transportation out of an ever-increasing concern about global warming and fossil fuel pollution. She served on the board of the Sonoma County Bicycle Coalition for a couple of years, and has served on the Santa Rosa Bicycle and Pedestrian Advisory Board since 2009. In 2013 Barbara and her husband Tom Helm, now both retired, discovered Citizens' Climate Lobby, which is working towards passing Carbon Fee & Dividend legislation at the national level. Citizens' Climate Lobby is now her main focus. Barbara encourages folks to check out the actions of the local chapters of Citizens' Climate Lobby.  Barbara will be marching in the upcoming People's Climate March this Saturday. Check for a march near you to participate in.
